Elpida Memory, a leading maker of dynamic random access memory (DRAM), and Infineon Technologies AG, a former maker of DRAM, on Thursday said that they had settled all the ongoing legal disputes and signed a broad cross-license agreement.

Elpida plans to withdraw its patent lawsuits filed with the Virginia U.S. district court while Infineon and its U.S. subsidiary have agreed to abandon a patent infringement complaint against Elpida and other respondents filed last February with the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington D.C.

Elpida and Infineon have settled the dispute through a broad patent cross license relating to semiconductor technology. The specific terms and conditions of the license are confidential.

"Both sides are glad to put an end to this dispute. At the same time, we have shown that we are committed to protecting our intellectual property rights,” said Yasuo Shirai, chief financial officer and executive officer in charge of IP and legal department.

“Infineon is pleased to have reached this agreement with Elpida, and we look forward to a lasting peace between the companies,” said Prof. Dr. Hermann Eul, member of the management board, responsible for sales, marketing technology and R&D at Infineon.
